White-tailed deer by gnohz White-tailed deer by gnohz
White-tailed deer, Alberta, Canada. Photographing this deer really required a lot of effort and patience, especially wild ones which are not accustomed to the presence of humans.

For this shot, I recall getting really low and moving towards the deer while taking small steps in that low, squatting position. It was painful and physically demanding. On every instance the deer turned in my direction, I froze. I was quite sure it smelt my presence, very sure. In the end, I think it took a couple of hours before I was able to get the look I wanted.

The light was perfect at this time. The only thing is about waiting for her to get to the right spot and turn in the right direction to get the golden rim light on her side :D

Yes, this was taken in Canada, a place I strongly recommend! :thumbsup:

well not exactly in the city of LA. in fact LA is far, 30 minutes (or more) away from my house. the city I live in is in Montclair. ;)

I see! Actually I do prefer slightly rural areas (not sure if Montclair is one :D ) for being quieter and away from the fast-paced city life :D
But anyway 30 minutes might not be that far away after all :D
